Tenant Selection is based on housing needs and local preferences. Applicants with no local preference are placed on the waiting list with a "no preference" status. A local preference is as follows: Involuntarily displaced - Being removed from rental property through no fault of your own. i.e. fire, flood, condemnation, city or state actions, and landlord wants the property back. Evictions for non-payment of rent is not included.Working family Twelve months of full-time continuous employment and those unable to work because of age or disability.
